Singer Amelle Berrabah nearly fainted while giving birth to her first daughter

Sugarbabes star Amelle Berrabah has opened up about the traumatic birth of her daughter which led to over 24 hours with pain but no labour.

Singer Amelle welcomed her first child with husband Marcio Sousa Rosa in May this year.

Although most births can be a little chaotic and often don’t go as you would hope, Amelle almost fainted from the pain after being induced and a failed attempt at having her waters broke!

Speaking to OK! Magazine the singer revealed: ‘They induced me on May 23 and for the next 24 hours I was getting pains, but no labour. The day after that they tried breaking my waters, which was traumatic, but it didn’t work so they had to force the contractions again.’

She added: ‘I had a fever so I nearly fainted while I was giving birth. Childbirth is beautiful, but it’s very hard!’

Amelle announced the news of her daughter’s birth with an adorable picture on Twitter showing her daughter Amirah Hope’s tiny little feet.

Amelle and her husband Marcio tied the knot in 2014 just six days after he popped the question! Marcio had planned the whole trip to include the proposal and wedding and had Amelle’s friends and family on hand to make sure everything went to plan.

Amelle explained: ‘Marcio wouldn’t have planned it if he wasn’t sure I’d be happy. He already knew what kind of wedding I’d like, and he had a lot of help from my family and his amazing wedding planner to make it perfect.’

She continued: ‘We got married on a private island in Mauritius. I’ve always felt that it’s pretty daunting and stressful planning a wedding, and it should be a day that’s the opposite to stress, so this took all of that away.’
